Is there a theory of jerks? Is the United States a conscious entity? Could you accidentally become a zombie robot? These are just a few of the ideas that are considered in the book we talk about tonight on Inquiry. Our guest is ERIC SCHWITZGEBEL, Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Riverside. His new book redefines philosophy: A THEORY OF JERKS: AND OTHER PHILOSOPHICAL MISADVENTURES.
Tonight on Inquiry we talk with DR. ROGER LEDERER, Professor Emeritus of Biological Sciences at California State University, Chico, and DR. CAROL BURR, Professor Emeritus of English at California State University, Chico. Together they have written and illustrated a wonderful new field guide to the birds of their local green space: THE BIRDS OF BIDWELL PARK. And this guide will only be the first in a series.
